Vinge advises Stadsnätsbolaget Sverige AB in an innovative infrastructure transaction

June 27, 2017

Vinge has advised Stadsnätsbolaget Sverige AB (”Stadsnätsbolaget”) in conjunction with its sale of five fibre networks in Eskilstuna, Strängnäs, Salem, Haninge and Södertälje to a start-up company (Fibernät i Mellansverige AB) which is owned and managed by Pareto Business Management AB.


The fibre network provides approximately 10 000 households in Central Sweden with internet connections. The acquisition is a so called sale and leaseback where the fibre network is sold, but is thereafter conducted and maintained by Stadsnätsbolaget. The transaction is an innovative financing arrangement which gives Stadsnätsbolaget the possibility to continue to invest and further develop fibre networks in Sweden.

Vinge’s team consisted of responsible partner Jonas Bergström and associate Alex Miler. Partner Assur Badur and associate Frida Ställborn provided real estate law advice.

European Commission provides sanctions compliance guidance

The European Commission has recently issued three opinions regarding the interpretation of asset freeze provisions in certain sanctions legislation pertaining to Central African Republic, Ukraine, Libya and Syria. The opinions are also of relevance for other sanctions regimes which provide for the same or similar restrictions. Therefore, their practical relevance goes far beyond the sanctions regimes in the context of which they were issued and they therefore provide for helpful guidance regarding the required thresholds for sanctions compliance generally.
